obama, 46% for mitt romney. finally new hampshire, the only state in the northeast where mitt romney's a real threat to take away from democrats. president obama's got a 2 percentage point lead, 49-24. in all of these polls, we see that mitt romney is roughly even with the president on the -- who can best manage the economy. on their favorable ratings, mitt romney's has improved, but in each case the lead the president has among women is spllightly larger than the lead mitt romney has among men. simen? >> john, thank you. >>> let's move from sandy and the road to recovery. baby steps i'm afraid still being taken in the city of new york today, including reports that manhattan power may be back online during the course of the weekend. until then, things appear to be getting tense. our senior correspondent scott cohn joins me now from lower manhattan. scott, i just heard firsthand that some residential buildings are now hiring armed guards because of the type of threat that they have faced from people attempting to loot as, of course, the police make those very regular trips during the

. is it because some now move their support to romney? is it because the friction of regulations? who knows. either way, there's no jamie dimon here, there's no lloyd blankfein here. there's also no representative of small business. the big labor leaders were here yesterday. the majority of employers in this country are not represented behind those doors today. >> i'm not sure the -- the head of am ex is there. not sure he would be a representative of wall street but it was remarked on here or not floor that there was no major banking interests there at all. you're right to point that out, brian. >> sue, if i could jump in to explain. white house has been asked about this. what they have said to us is that they were looking for consumer facing businesses here. that's why they brought a lot of these guys who sell products to consumers out in the public. they also said this is not going to be the last one of the meetings that they are going to hold, that they will have other executives from other industries in throughout the course of this fiscal cliff conversation. >> consumers can't buy a

of view when it comes to the election but those are the numbers right now. >> mr. romney has been pointing out that the unemployment rate is higher -- by .01%. >> you say a war, it misses the whole story, the whole drama. >> john harwood, it feels to me that we're going to spend most of the weekend in spin class, if you will, as both sides try and spin these numbers for their own purposes. >> well, i do think it is a little bit late for spin. i wouldn't -- i agree with steve, i don't think this report is a game changer, positive or negati negative, for the president. we've seen even before the last report when the jobless rate went down below 8% to 7.8%, it did not move the needle very much in terms of the presidential race. our country is very polarized. 90% of the people have already made up their mind who they are going to vote for. the idea we are recovering economically but very slowly in a manner in which there are millions of people still looking for jobs is baked in to everybody's expectations. i think this gives the president a grace note to close his campaign on, not likely to ma
